Valentine's Day




We had heart-shaped blueberry pancakes for breakfast. Both girls chowed!





Later in the day the girls (well, Norah) and I made a heart-shaped red velvet cake for Kevin.

Look closely at Norah's lip and neck of her shirt - you will notice red frosting:)

Okay, so, I am fairly confident in my baking ability. I LOVE it and it's in my blood (my great-grandfather was a baker) - however, I CANNOT frost/decorate a cake that is not in a 9x13 pan. You'll notice that I added red sprinkles to cover up all the red crumbs that came through as I was trying to frost.

Kevin surprised me with a delivery of chocolate covered strawberries!! Yum!

Didn't you also have a grandfather or great-grandfather who invented teflon or something? Or am I totally making that up?

Sara, you have an incredible memory! My grandfather invented the machine that put teflon on the pans - the teflon was invented but it wouldn't stick to the pans!
